Italian Nationalist Leader Pledges “New Europe” After Wave of Populist Victories

Matteo Salvini, Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister and leader of the nationalist ‘Lega’ Party, struck a triumphant tone on Sunday after a wave of populist and right-wing victories across Europe in European Parliament elections.

Salvini’s party came in first place in Italy, securing around 34% of the vote and far outpacing traditional center-right parties and its left-populist governing partner. Right-wing populist and euroskeptic parties also won big in major EU member states such as France, where Marine Le Pen’s National Rally party triumphed over incumbent French President Emmanuel Macron’s centrist party.

The UK’s Brexit Party, which participated in the EU election on account of Britain’s ongoing membership in the globalist political union despite a 2016 national referendum in which the British public voted to leave the group, won big, representing a renewed call for the nation to exit the EU after Tory Prime Minister Theresa May’s embarrassing failure to deliver on Brexit.

Salvini has shown himself as one of the boldest among a new generation of nationalists, willing to directly challenge the neoliberal hegemony of multinational corporations, big banks and corrupt oligarchs that have dominated moribund institutions such as the European Parliament for decade.

Salvini was followed in his celebration of Sunday’s populist victories by Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban. Orban’s Fidesz Party won in Hungary with a whopping 52% majority, and the nationalist leader pledged to work with any political party with a presence in the European Union that would fight to stop mass immigration.

Nationalist leaders such as Salvini and Orban differ from Euroskeptic movements in nations such as Britain in seeking to reform the EU as a voluntary union of peoples and nations respecting and promoting national sovereignty. With the populist presence in the European Parliament greater than ever before, they could be a step closer to realizing their vision of radical change for the antiquated bureaucracy.

At Least 40 Americans Infected With Coronavirus Aboard Quarantined Cruise Ship

They will be treated in hospitals in Japan.

At least 40 Americans aboard a cruise ship have been infected with the coronavirus, in a development that suggest the dangerous disease may transmit more rapidly than the public in the western world realizes.

Immunologist Anthony Fauci, an official with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, confirmed that 40 Americans had been diagnosed with the disease in an appearance on 60 Minutes Sunday.

Some reporting indicates that even more people have been infected with the disease, with figures ranging up to 355. These estimates include passengers of all nationalities. Those afflicted with coronavirus are being taken to Japanese hospitals to receive medical treatment.

The Americans were on board the cruise ship Diamond Princess, which is currently quarantined in Yokohama, Japan. The ship is host to the most pervasive outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic outside of China, where it originated. American passengers who tested negative of the disease have been evacuated from the ship and brought back to the United States on charter planes. Those infected with the virus will be treated in Japanese hospitals.

At least one American passenger who was traveling on board the Diamond Princess is refusing to take a U.S government charter plane back to the country, stating his belief to USA Today that the evacuation process the government is using to retrieve its citizens is not safe.

There’s considerable cause to believe the global public is being largely kept in the dark by the authoritarian Chinese government on the dangers posed by the quickly spreading virus. Estimates of the total count of people infected by the disease are largely unclear, with the Chinese government suspected of releasing deflated statistics in an effort to blunt criticism of their response to the epidemic.
